Land Rover’s Ultimate Surprise for One Defender Fan on Valentine’s Day

Land Rover pulled the ultimate surprise and the grandest, heartwarming gift to four mates who pulled student loans together to buy their first love, a 1957 Series 1 Land Rover.

“This is a true story of love, loss and the greatest valentine gift ever” the video starts off which was uploaded on Land Rover’s Youtube page last Feb 13.

According to Land Rover, after several years the vehicle fell into such disrepair that the four friends decided to put her up on sale. Unknowingly, Land Rover purchased it and brought the car back to her former glory.
